BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - New court filings say two former Louisiana State University students involved in the hazing death of a pledge last year were involved in a similar incident days prior.

It says 19-year-old Ryan Matthew Isto participated.
Isto and Gott are two of four former LSU students accused of taking part in the Sept. 14 drinking death of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver.
Twenty-year-old Matthew Alexander Naquin is charged with negligent homicide. Gott, Isto and 21-year-old Patrick Andrew Forde are charged with misdemeanor hazing.
Trials for Gott and Isto are set for Dec. 4
